8:08 am
joe, we really appreciate you coming on this morning. where were you when you heard that explosion? >> i was actually in the gap on 8th avenue and 23rd. which is about an avenue away from here. i was sort in front of the store. i felt and heard the explosion. >> so, you went in the direction of the explosion to check it out? >> there was some vehicles starting to respond and so we started going towards what was going on. we could see some fire trucks already down here on the scene and we started walking this direction. >> and in your pictures that you posted on the the internet, you see a lot of first responders, some victims being treated, did you see a lot of victims and did you get a sense of widespread fear and panic in the area? >> i was watching the firefighters. i told my girlfriend, take a look at the firefighters and see how they're reacting. and they escorted one the gentleman i took the photos of -- they brought a chair and they sat him down right on 7th avenue
8:09 am
and 23rd. between 23rd and 24th. i saw the one guy that i took the photos of, there were other people came along a little later. >> so you felt confident based on the demeanor of these firefighters that this was not an exceedingly dangerous place to be. >> we were told, from what i heard, it was between 5th and 6th, we thought it was an avenue away. actually, it was right here. >> and i understand you were actually near the world trade center in 1993 when it was hit by a bomb. did this give you a flashback? >> yes, it absolutely did. in fact, the jolt and the noise that i heard was very similar and also the people's reaction >> joe clark, we're really glad you're safe and for coming on this morning. thanks very much. >> thank you so much for having me. a perspective of what's happening right now with this investigation, we want to bring
8:10 am
in a former nypd. i want to go back to new york city, bill deblasio said this was quote an intentional act. then went on the say, quote, there's no evidence of a terror connection. we're so early in the act how can he be ruling out terror? >> i don't he's ruling it out. i think he's being cautious. and i think cautious is prudent at this point. you don't want panic. a terror act is any act of violence against the people to instill terror in them to go to the government to have them change foreign policy. but what we see here is, the mayor and the commissioner james o'neill, i think it's his second day in office, they're going to take the cautious approach. they're not going to instill panic in the people. >> i want everybody to look at the map and what happened and when. there was that explosion in seaside, new jersey, in the morning. 12 hours later, the blast in the chelsea neighborhood of new york city and that suspicious-looking
8:11 am
pressure cook device was found a few blocks away, right now, anything that leads you to believe that these all connected. >> they may or may not together. so, what they're going to do is they're going to coordinate the investigation, share information between investigators in new york and in new jersey. they'll come at some point with a decision if they are or aren't connected. >> and they'll be looking at the pressure cooker this morning. >> well, the pressure cooker is great. they have the pressure cooker it was removed from the new york city bomb squad. they have it. they'll make the decision whether they're going to explode the device to gather evidence or they're going to attempt to inside of it if there's a device.
8:12 am
>> all right, nick, we really appreciate your insight this morning. very busy morning for you. thanks for coming in. >> dan. >> thank you, nick. thank you, paula. the explosion in manhattan immediately, of course, sent ripples out to campaign trail. donald trump coming out early calling it a bomb before officials had confirmed that information. hillary clinton pouncing on trump for that. abc's mary bruce is on that story. mary, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. we're already getting a glimpse this morning how trump and clinton would react as president. overnight, both responding, but in very different ways. already, it's becoming political, with hillary clinton seeming to scold trump for his swift conclusion. donald trump was quick to respond to the explosion in manhattan speaking out after initial reports. >> just before i got off the plane, a bomb went off in new york. nobody knows exactly what's going on. we're living in a time, we better get very tough, folks. >> reporter: describing it as a
8:13 am
bomb even before it was confirmed. two hours later after landing back home in new york, clinton took a more cautious approach. >> we have to let the investigation unfold. i'll have more to say about it when we know some facts. >> reporter: and she took a swing at trump. >> i think it's always wiser to wait until you have information before making conclusions. >> reporter: both candidates are being criticized by former defense secretary robert gates for lacking national security plans. but in "the wall street journal," gates writes, that donald trump is unfit to be commander in chief. trump is hitting back. >> when they leave office they criticizing everyone. i don't like critics. i like the people who get it done and get it done right. >> reporter: now here at the white house the president has been updated throughout the night. he has yet to respond publicly. >> mary, thank you.
8:14 am
for more on all of this let's bring in martha raddatz, in washington where she'll be hosting "this week" later this morning. thank you for joining us. we want to ask you, how are both candidates viewed as commander-in-chief particularly in moments of crises? >> paula and dan, moments like these are critical because they show voters how each candidate would handle the many crises they're sure to face in the white house and these two as we see could not be more different. you saw hillary clinton come out with that careful statement, sticking to the facts as she awaits more information, that's really indicative of her style as secretary of state. contrast that to donald trump who shoots from the hip. to some it's an aggressive style that carries a lot of risks but to others after eight years of a measured commander in chief, some aggression they appreciate. >> eight days away from now
8:15 am
which could be a pivotal moment the first presidential debate, how high are the stakes for these two candidates? >> it's such an important moment in this race, the last real variable where the candidates will be head to head without teleprompters and without advisers on the same stage. barring any meltdown, these debates usually don't redefine the race but they tend to reinforce ideas of each candidate. that's just as important. both are practicing. we're not sure it's exactly the same between donald trump and hillary clinton. all we've seen of her is those massive briefing books. not quite with donald trump. >> martha, we should point out you'll be moderating the second debate, which will come up shortly after the first one. martha, thank you. i want to remind everybody martha has a big show this morning, she goes one-on-one with both vice president nominees, republican mike pence and democrat tim kaine. >> you can download the abc news

i'm hall of famer jerry west and my life is basketball. but that doesn't stop my afib from leaving me at a higher risk of stroke. that'd be devastating. i took warfarin for over 15 years until i learned more about once-daily xarelto... a latest generation blood thinner. then i made the switch. xarelto® significantly lowers the risk of stroke in people with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. it has similar effectiveness to warfarin. warfarin interferes with vitamin k and at least six blood clotting factors. xarelto® is selective targeting one critical factor of your body's natural clotting function. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases fatal bleeding.
8:25 am
get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto. there's more to know. xarelto.

8:33 am
assembly meeting coming up this week. president obama is expected to arrive there pretty soon. so, there's great sense of urgency to figure out precisely what this is. dan? >> pierre, thank you. all this coming at the same time a terrifying attack at a mall in minnesota that we mentioned earlier in the show. a man wearing the uniform of a security guard stabbed several people before he was shot by an off-duty police officer. abc's sunny hostin is in studio this morning with that story. >> reporter: it was a frightening scene. eight people were injured in that attack at that shopping mall leaving a town on edge. overnight, a stabbing rampage inside a packed mall in minnesota. >> st. cloud is getting reports of stabbing and shots fired at the mall off division street. >> reporter: witnesses say the suspect wearing a security guard uniform armed with knife went on an attack inside the mall. the police swarming the area.

my challenge is to be in sync, with my body, myself, my life. it all starts with a healthy routine. begin the activia two week probiotic challenge by enjoying activia yogurt with billions of probiotics everyday. take the activia probiotic challenge! i was energetic.gia, billions of probiotics everyday. i was active. then the chronic, widespread pain drained my energy. my doctor said moving more helps ease fibromyalgia pain. he also prescribed lyrica. fibromyalgia is thought to be the result of overactive nerves. lyrica is believed to calm these nerves.
8:39 am
for some, lyrica can significantly relieve fibromyalgia pain and improve function, so i feel better. lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new or worsening depression, or unusual changes in mood or behavior. or swelling, trouble breathing, rash, hives, blisters, muscle pain with fever, tired feeling, or blurry vision. common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain and swelling of hands, legs and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you. those who have had a drug or alcohol problem may be more likely to misuse lyrica. with less pain, i can be more active. ask your doctor about lyrica. let's just get a sandwich or something. "or something"? you don't just graduate from medical school, "or something." and we don't just pull smoked chicken, bake fresh foccacia and hand-slice avocado. there's nothing "or something" about it.

8:43 am
hall of fame says that it nominates no one. a committee of 46 journalists and 2 existing hall of fame members vote on the nominations the day before the super bowl. to be eligible for nomination a player must be retired from the league for at least five years. but according to the hall of fame, character is no criteria for the induction process. >> for the nfl to be in another story like this where a convicted rapist is being nominated for the pro football hall of fame, that's exactly where the national football league does not want to be. >> reporter: the hall of official leaving the door open to a change in policy, saying i'm sure it will be discuss. we never say never. we want to make sure our process the best process. there are several football hall of fame members that have been convicted of crimes they were inducted before they were convicted those crimes. darren was nominated after he pleaded guilty to a felony charge. >> darren sharper's in prison
